The Ultimate team is finally here, and they’re going to be awesome.
The best teams of all time will face off in a playoff that could decide the championship.
But before we go down the tunnel, we’re looking at some of the most memorable moments from the Super Bowl and the rest of the season.
Tom Brady vs. Aaron Rodgers.
I think the best part about this game is the fact that the NFL has given its best player a full week off, which means the Patriots will likely have a full complement of backup quarterbacks, a new offense, and a new defense.
Brady’s return, along with that of his two top receivers, will be a major boost for the offense.
The Patriots will also be better off without Rob Gronkowski, as he was the best receiver on the team.
But if Gronk isn’t fully healthy, the Patriots could still be a dangerous team.
They’ll need him to be to have a chance to win this game, but that shouldn’t be a problem.
Peyton Manning vs. Cam Newton.
It’s the first Super Bowl game in which Peyton Manning has been healthy all season, which is always good.
He’s had some nagging injuries, but the Broncos will be able to hang with any of the other teams this year, as the Panthers are without their best player, Greg Olsen, and the Patriots are without Cam Newton’s top pass rusher, Vince Wilfork.
This should be a fun game, and Manning should do well.
Tom Savage vs. Eli Manning.
The Broncos have one of the best defenses in the league, and Savage should be able at least keep his job.
The Texans, on the other hand, have a very good offense, but Savage has been so bad that the Broncos are not going to have much of an advantage.
Adrian Peterson vs. Joe Flacco.
It should be tough for Flacco to keep this one close, and Peterson is one of his best receivers.
Peterson is probably going to do pretty well, but Flacco has been great the past few years and he’ll be able avenge his loss in last year’s AFC Championship game.
Peyton Barber vs. Matt Ryan.
The Falcons should be the better team, but Barber is a very solid cornerback and Ryan is one hell of a passer.
Barber should have a great game, as should Ryan, but this game will be decided by who is better.
Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. Jimmy Garoppolo.
It’ll be tough to decide between Garoppoli and Fitzpatrick in this game.
Garoppolos ability to run well will allow him to get to the end zone and make plays, but Fitzpatrick is the best quarterback in the game, which should be easy to decide.
Aaron Hernandez vs. Brian Hoyer.
The Chiefs will be without a lot of key contributors, including Hoyer, who was suspended the first four games of the regular season.
Hoyer should be one of their best quarterbacks, and Hernandez should have some nice opportunities to do so. 8.
Brandon Marshall vs. Josh Gordon.
The 49ers have the best passing attack in the NFL, but Marshall should have the most fun running the ball and scoring.
He has a lot to prove this season, and he needs to be able have a breakout game against a good quarterback like Gordon.
Eli Rogers vs. Adrian Clayborn.
Clayborn should be strong against the run and the Browns have the toughest pass defense in the NFC, but Rogers should be dominant against the pass and be a big threat to make plays on the ground.
Mike Wallace vs. Julio Jones.
I don’t think I’ve ever been a huge fan of Jones, but I’m not a huge believer in Wallace’s ability to go up against the top receivers in the draft.
It will be interesting to see if he’s a big factor against the receivers that Wallace is used to. 11.
Brandon McManus vs. Jerick McKinnon.
McKinnon is an incredible receiver, but he can’t do much on the inside.
This will be an interesting matchup for McManuses skillset.
Joe Mixon vs. A.J. Green.
This is a matchup I’m really excited to see.
Mixon is a huge talent, and Green will be one helluva blocker, but Mixon should be better than Green.
Tyrod Taylor vs. Alex Smith.
Smith was the worst quarterback of the previous two Super Bowls, but Taylor should be an unstoppable force.
He’ll be one for the ages this season.
Drew Brees vs. Ryan Tannehill.
This game will have the greatest stakes in the history of football, and Brees and Tanneham will battle for the final Super Bowl title.
Ben Roethlisberger vs. Antonio Brown.
It may be the toughest matchup of the entire season for the Steelers, as they don’t have the top receiver in the class in Brown, but Roethisberger has
